PCDN’s 2019 Career Series is focused The Future of Work in Social Change. We will continue our exploration of the key trends and concrete tips to help you advance a career of impact.
Please join us for our next webinar in the series featuring leading expert Diana Basto, Head of Tertiary Education at the British Council in Colombia.
In the webinar we will discuss the skills needed for the fourth industrial revolution. Are the education systems getting it right? Are we aware of what we lack in our professional and personal development? Are we going to be replaced by robots? Is it possible to be re-trained? Do we need a different mindset to navigate the future?
With so much information, knowledge and opportunities out there, we need to identify the key skills so we don´t miss the bus.
Join us for this highly interactive session that will feature plenty of time for discussion and your questions.
